## How To Use ‘simplify()’ Command In MatLab®?

``````>> syms a
y = (2*a^3+4*a^2+10*a+20)/(a^2+5);
simplify(y)

ans =

2*a + 4

>> ``````

As you see above, we created a symbolic variable with the syms command and we created our equation with this variable. Our equation is quite complex. Normally, we need to make simplifications and factorizations to obtain a more simple form of this equation.

So, if you type this equation inside the ‘simplify()’ command, you will be given the more simple form as you see the above example as an answer.

## Conclusion

As you see in the example above, the ‘simplify()’ command in Matlab® can be very useful.
